I am originally from Missoula Montana and have been a nurse for over 12 years. I worked in acute care med/surg nursing before transitioning into education. I taught for 8 years at a small college in Helena, MT and have experience in all aspects of nursing education. Teaching student nurses is my passion and I am so excited to be joining the team of excellent faculty at PLU. In my spare time I love fly fishing, kayaking and traveling with my family.

Currently serving on the Montana Board of Nursing as a Simulation Task Force Member and Presenter
